About  Attorney Charles D. Hines

Charlie Hines is an Enfield native and a graduate of Enfield schools. His early legal carrier is marked by his service in the Connecticut Public Defender's Office. Charlie worked in the Enfield Public Defender's Office for ten years, serving as the supervisor for six of those years. This experience left him with a thorough knowledge of criminal defense.

In 1996, Charlie left the Public Defender's and opened the Law Office of Attorney Charles D. Hines.  This law firm now focuses on handling the defense of criminal and motor vehicle charges as well as personal injury/accident cases. Additionally, the firm drafts Wills, Living Wills and Powers of Attorney.

Attorney Hines believes that concentrating on three fundamentals is the key to a successful practice.  First, he believes that it is crucial to listen to the client. After all, it’s the client’s case, not the lawyer’s.  Second, be prepared.  It is vital to know your case and to know the current law.  It is a challenge to keep up with the newest laws and changes in the court procedure, but knowing the details is where cases are won.  Finally, it is important to respect the clients wishes.  The attorney’s job it to guide and advise the client, but ultimately, the client is driving the bus.

Avoid a Conviction

For individuals facing criminal charges, there are different programs available in Connecticut that can help you avoid a conviction and permanent criminal record. Some of these programs available in Connecticut include:

  • Alcohol Education Program — can enable you to avoid conviction on a DUI charge.
  • Accelerated Pretrial Rehabilitation — postpones a final judgment for a period of six months to two years, after which the charge is dismissed. Often used in cases involving first-time shoplifting and theft offenses.
  • Drug Education Program – First and Second-time drug cases – you can avoid a conviction provided that you complete a drug education course and community service.
  • Other programs — include the Family Violence Education Program and Violence Education Program.

Eligibility for these programs vary and your participation is determined by the cooperation of the prosecutor and approval of the court. Our law firm has many good working relationships with prosecutors and has helped many people use these programs to avoid conviction.
